I wonder if anybody knows good resources which are focused on etymology for the sake of learning?
Or alternatively, a good resource to look it up?
Found this, but apparently it is broken:
Sounds pretty good at glance:
Sound-meaning compounds, or keisei (形声). These borrow a character to represent a sound, and use a meaning component to clarify which homophone it represents. One example is the word for “to point” 指 shi、wherein 旨 (pronounced shi) suggests the pronunciation, and the symbol for hand扌contributes to the meaning. These characters are by far the most common, making up some 80% of all kanji.
